When I have a sticky chamber like that, I take a chamber-sized bore swab, chuck it in a drill and load it up with FLITZ, and then spin the swab through the chamber for a bit and polish up the chamber.  Then I clean it really really well. The problem usually goes away.

How's the accuracy? I had thought about buying one, but I'm always suspect of the barrels on inexpensive firearms.

thanks shaman i actauly scrubbed the heck outa the chamber and it didnt help with the winchesters????? i mic'ed the rem;s and the win's and the wins were a few 1,000th's larger and 2 100'th's  longer. thats enough to cause the problem id say. i dont know if its a bad batch or just the paticular load. as for the accuracy its a real tac driver i was shooting 1/2" groups at 100yds. i really like the rifle.
